Football: Brechin City 0, Hamilton 1.
Brechin’s twice postponed match with Hamilton came off on Wednesday evening. It was not that the homesters did not try, but once again the opposition was that bit better. Good work by Neilson kept the score down and it was no Jim Kerr’s fault there were no goals to Brechin’s credit.

Football: AYr United 2, Brechin City 1.
Brechin City lost another two points at Ayr on Saturday, their second defeat in as many games. Their play was described as “vastly improved” but they received a body blow half way through the second half, when they had to concede two goals to Malcolm Adams, Ayr’s ace striker.
